Idaho Woman Turned an Old Rotten Tree Stump Into an Awesome Free Library

The Little Free (Tree) Library

This is an awesome project. A Coeur d'Alene artist found a unique way to repurpose an old and decaying tree in her front yard. She's turned the tree's stump into a Little Free Library. It's a free book exchange designed to encourage reading. A Facebook post from the woman has since been shared close to 30,000 times!https://www.krem.com/mobile/article/news/local/kootenai-county/artist-turns-100-year-old-tree-in-coeur-dalene-into-little-library/293-3fa730c4-2ccf-4771-bed9-0176fb334083

What an incredible job well done from this librarian in Idaho! Not many people would think of doing something this creative with a typical homeowner problem.

I am a recent new home buyer and with it comes the typical everyday “honey do list.” You know, realign and clean gutters (spring), the minor landscaping that includes the usual raking (fall), and of course snow removal from the driveway during the winter months.

I also have a group of trees that are a little too close for comfort that need to be removed come this spring. Including a big ol’ fat Pine in the back yard.

This story has given me a little bit of inspiration…will I do it? Most likely not (or knot haha, see what I did there) but it’s fun to imagine!

Ok, this project isn’t quite finished… but I can’t wait to share it. We had to remove a huge tree that was over 110…
